Buy e-books for your students

  1. Decide which e-books best suit your students. Do they need the Student's Book and a Workbook? Which Graded Readers would be right for their level?

    To make it easier for students, you can request an access code that gives students several e-books at the same time, or just one e-book.

    For example:

    • Student's Book
    • Student's Book + Workbook
    • Student's Book + Workbook + Reader
  2. Contact your ELT consultant to arrange to purchase access codes from your usual bookshop or distributor.
